Re: James Fulford's blog post Macron Vs. Marine Le Pen: Macron's Ahead, But So Were Hillary And The Anti-Brexit Mob

The French just finished the first round of their Presidential Election this past Sunday. Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen have advanced to the second round, resulting in a rematch of 2017. The race is suspected to be much closer than last time, with Marine Le Pen having a legitimate chance of winning. If she does, it will be a political earthquake in the same way as Brexit and Trump’s victory.
I noticed something interesting in the first round results. Marine Le Pen handily won the overseas territory/department of Mayotte. This is a small island off the coast of Madagascar. It has a population of about 300,000, the overwhelming majority of which are visible minorities and Muslim.
How could the allegedly xenophobic, anti-Islamic, and racist bigot win in Mayotte?
I suspect the reason is because Mayotte is a major destination for illegal immigration from Africa. Taking patriotic positions on immigration did not hurt Marine Le Pen in Mayotte, just like it did not hurt Trump in South Texas. Minorities are often the biggest victims of illegal immigration, and the GOP should capitalize on this fact.
